I love daydreaming about future books I want to read. My to-be-read list is crazy long, but there are still certain books that I *know* I’ll get to. Some of those can’t-wait-to-get-them books that are releasing in 2015 (or late enough in 2014 that I haven’t gotten to them) include:
Savor: Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are by Shauna Niequist
Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder, edited by Pamela Smith Hill
I love the Little House series, and am looking forward to this look at Wilder’s life beyond the sculpted-into-a-story aspects of her novels.
I love the book, and the movie, so a book about the movie? Plus book club is reading The Princess Bride this year, and this will be a fun supplement as I reread the novel. And perhaps watch the movie too. Again. For the umpteenth time.
Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church by Rachel Held Evans
I’ve enjoyed her previous books quite a bit, so I expect that I’ll like this one as much. She’s always thought-provoking, in a very good way, and this topic hits close to home for me.
The Story of Science: From the Writings of Aristotle to the Big Bang Theory by Susan Wise Bauer
Put this in the “tentatively planning on reading” category. If it’s too dry or technical I’ll pass, but I’m going on the assumption it’ll be like her history books in which case I expect to enjoy it.
The War that Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
I’ve enjoyed some of her books in the past, and this sounds like a fascinating take on the evacuation of children from London during WWII. My only hesitation with it is it may be a bit too tear-jerking for me right now, but I’ll give it a try.
Blue Birds by Caroline Starr Rose
I loved her book May B, so I’m excited to read this one, set on Roanoke Island in the 16th century. (She also has a picture book coming out that I’ll look for: Over in the Wetlands: A Hurricane-on-the-Bayou Story)
Fairest: Levana’s Story (#3.5 in the Lunar Chronicles series) & Winter (#4 in the series) by Marissa Meyer
Another one not to start mid-series is Manners & Mutiny (Finishing School #4) by Gail Carriger. Begin with the first, Etiquette & Espionage, and see if you like Steampunk. There’s no cover yet to share on it, but it’s supposed to release late in the year. I do hope it’s not delayed…
I’m behind on the series, so in addition to the new title releasing in 2014 I have earlier books too to finish – I’ve got #4, I Am Half-Sick of Shadows, #5, Speaking from Among the Bones, #6, The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches, and the upcoming #7 As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust. There’s also The Curious Case of the Copper Corpse, a short story that just released. I may grab it if I end up needing still more Flavia.
The Witch Hunter’s Tale: A Midwife Mystery by Sam Thomas
A new Kate Morton!
No cover to reveal, or plot to share, but the as-yet-untitled novel to be published in September. At least I assume it’s on track to be published then even if it is untitled – it’s already listed for pre-order, so I guess they’re confident it’ll be releasing on time! Something tells me it might turn into a book club pick for 2016, so I may hold off on reading it until we make our picks for then.
